Cherry Deficiencies & Pests

Cherry pests and diseases need to be monitored and treated to prevent tree damage and infections in the field. Untreated pests and diseases can remain undetected inside a fruit, with damage appearing only during postharvest operations. The spread of pests and infection throughout an orchard can lead to a large economic loss.

For detailed program in cherry pest management, see UC Statewide IPM Program: How to Manage Pests: Cherry, which includes a year-round IPM Program for cherry, and University of California's official guidelines for pest monitoring techniques, pesticides, and nonpesticide alternatives for managing pests.
